under the weather

The past five days have been less than stellar. Much less. I've had some variation of a cold that has knocked me out completely. Luckily, M was able to come home from work last Thursday to watch S while I slept. Friday, I felt a little better, and I was supremely grateful for S's unusually long naps. Saturday, I felt pretty good, except for the nasty dry cough I'd developed, so we went about our business running errands and cleaning house and whatnot. Big mistake. Apparently, my body wanted another day of rest, which brings us to yesterday. I think I was awake a total of about six hours yesterday. Thank you, M, for taking such good care of me and baby girl while I fought through the plague.

Today is much better, but I'm planning on taking it easy anyway. That's hard for me. I know that things need to be done. However, I realize that taking care of S can be taxing enough, and I don't want to stay sick or be forced to go to the doctor. Wish me luck.

Not much going on around here other than that. I did make another yum-scrum dessert this weekend. Chocolate cobbler. The recipe is from a cookbook my Aunt O gave me recently. Holy cow, it's chocolaty. This dessert is not for anyone watching their waistline. I substituted half the sugar for brown sugar in a feeble attempt at being a bit more healthy, but I knew messing with this recipe too much would not work out. Besides, it's chocolate healthy do you really want it to be? Anyway, if you're wanting to go all out with a dessert, let me know and I'll share the recipe.

Happy Monday. I'm going to take a nap.

Hope you feel better! I'm a firm believe that getting sick is often our body's way of saying "hey - slow down! Take care of yourself more!"

I'm also a believer that some desserts just shouldn't be touched and should be enjoyed in all of their fattening glory! Glad to hear you're resting a eating chocolate - sounds like a perfect recipe for recovery :)

Take care of yourself, sweetie! I know how you feel. I too suffer from that gogogoallthetime feeling. But it'll take longer for you to get back to business if you don't rest fully first. Hope you feel better. Props to the TSB for taking such good care of the fam.

I was wondering where you were...slow down!!! It is too hot to do anything fast anyway. Today it was 106 in Memphis and the dead Elvis freaks are everywhere.
